Company Signs Over 50 CrossRef Members in Less Than a Year

OAKLAND, Calif., May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- iThenticate, the leader in web-based content verification technology, today announced the addition of its 51st publisher to its CrossCheck user community. The CrossCheck user community is comprised of global scientific, medical and technical publishers and societies using iThenticate technology in the editorial process, as well as depositing their respective published scholarly articles in iThenticate's comparison databases.

"CrossCheck has, in a very short space of time, become an invaluable

editorial tool in BMJ Group's content acquisition processes, enabling both

pre- and post-publication content checking," said Phil Caisley, Head of Information Services, BMJ Group. "It's used across our business, providing the means by which we can protect our reputation as a publisher of original content, protect our published content from potential downstream misuse, and protect our authors' reputations. CrossCheck's value increases with each additional publisher who joins the community, and BMJ Group is proud to be a member of this community, and to promote CrossCheck's value to the industry."

"As more publishers join the CrossCheck community, our comparison database grows. And as the comparison database grows, iThenticate becomes more valuable not only to the publishers and editors we serve, but to our entire user base," said Robert Creutz, GM of iThenticate. "It's exciting to see our partnership with CrossRef achieve such strong results in such a short time."

Growing at a rate of 20 million pages a day, the iThenticate database enables its award-winning, web-based plagiarism prevention services to rapidly check information for originality against an unprecedented volume of public and proprietary information. The database itself boasts billions of articles from the web and a wide variety of publishing partners.
